Cannes and its surroundings

Cannes and its surroundings

The world-renowned city of Cannes, a jewel of the Côte d'Azur, never disappoints its visitors. It is on a par with its reputation: chic, dazzling, magnificent like its festivals and great events (such as the Film Festival). But it can also be surprising in the simple authenticity of its neighbourhoods (Le Suquet) and bustling markets, ever-effervescent yachting wharves. The sandy beaches and establishments along La Croisette contemplate one of the most splendid natural heritage sites of the French Riviera: the Isles of Lérins.

Mandelieu-La Napoule and Théoule-sur-Mer in the Bay of Cannes are ideal, resourceful resorts with many activities. The charm and elegance of Mougins and Old Cannet, where Bonnard settled, are most engaging.
